I've been pleased!
Light, simple, inexpensive. Great hammock in my opinion. Very comfortable, plenty of room, and holds me just fine! ( 190lbs )

Light and cheap
I already own a ENO doublenest hammock and wanted to try out a smaller version for some fast and light backpacking. I haven't got to field test it yet but I strung it up in my backyard and it napped nicely. I was really impressed with the weight... Next to none. The little s hooks that come equipped seem nice but I switched them out for some carabiners. GrandTrunk has some really cool stuff and this ultralight tops the charts of budget conscious.

Grand Trunk ultralight... ftw!
I love this hammock! I try to practice the ultralight philosophy yet I still bring this hammock with me whenever I go backpacking for the luxury of something comfortable to relax on. The fabric doesn't feel strong, but it certainly is. I'm about 170lbs of solid muscle & fury and the Grand Trunk ultralight keeps me afloat with no signs of strain. The one thing that I think is dumb that the company put in is the system at each end. Its essentially strong thick nylon cord and metal 'S' hooks (which for the ultralighter weigh a ton). You can further reduce the weight if you replace this system with paracord, as i have, or with a wire gate caribeaner to keep the weight down. Another thing I must add is if you're new to hammocking, you're supposed to lay at ABOUT a 30 degree angle to the midline for the best support to your back. I originally thought this hammock was an exception, but after a little fiddling I found that sweet spot per say. I got the cammo so i could use it to hide my tent if I ever want to stealth camp. It was hard to dish out the extra $10 on such a cheap item for my preferred color, but I'm okay with that. Overall, I'm very happy with my hammock so far... and i think if something did happen to it that was my fault, i'd probably get another one.
